The trophy that Team India was running after for two consecutive years, has now gone out of its reach. Because world cricket has got its first Test champion in the form of New Zealand. Kane & Co defeated Virat Sena by eight wickets in the rain-hit title match.
This is a delicate moment for the Indian team. The confidence of the players is shaken. There is a tough challenge for England in front, before this captain Kohli is trying to raise the morale of his army. That is why he gave this message in front of the world.
it’s not a team it’s a family
On Thursday night, just the day after the crushing defeat, he tweeted, ‘This is not just a team, but a family. We move forward together. Next he also put a blue heart and tricolor flag. It is clear that the run machine Kohli wants to give a message to the world that now the entire Indian team is recovering from the shock after the crushing defeat and he is standing by his players in any situation.
Best of three format lobbying
After the loss, he was also seen questioning the format of the World Test Championship. Kohli had argued for the final not to be one but in the ‘Best of Three’ format, echoing the tone of head coach Ravi Shastri. According to the Indian captain, the best Test team in the world cannot be decided on the basis of one final.
Kohli flopped with the bat
Including both the innings of the final, Virat could only score 57 runs. Kohli scored 44 runs in the first innings. In the second innings, he scored 13 runs. He was dismissed by Kyle Jamieson in both innings. Jamieson plays for Royal Challengers Bangalore, captained by Kohli, in the Indian Premier League. He was caught by BJ Watling on a ball from Jamieson. He kept the bat on the ball rising outside the off-stump.
India lost the match like this
Due to rain on the first and fourth days, the match dragged on to the sixth day, which was kept as a safe day by the International Cricket Council (ICC). New Zealand took full advantage of this. First his bowlers bundled out India for 170 in the second innings and later created history by scoring 140 for two with excellent innings by Taylor (47 not out off 100 balls) and Williamson (52 not off 89 balls).
